Let's row the boat, darling

Anna met Aaron on a nice day in Summer 1938 nearby the river bank in the village. She was only 9 and he was 11. Anna came from another city to this village with her family. They used to play nearby the river bank most of the days, since the day thet met. They rowed boats together, they swam together. They became good friends eventually. When they became teenagers, they fell in love.  They loved each other very much.

But, Anna’s family didn’t like Aaron, since his parents were only farmers. It was because Anna’s family was the wealthiest family in the village. Anna’s father John wanted her to marry  a wealthy man who lived in the city.  Anna couldn’t do anything about that, since she was just a girl. Although, Anna asked, Aaron to take her somewhere and marry her, without a proper job Aaron didn’t like to do so.
Things were going wrong. Anna got married to a rich guy who lived in the city, it happened only for her father’s desire. Anna never liked that guy. After marriage, she had to go to her husband's house. Aaron, too was disappointed and he left the country forever. 

Anna never lived happily. She was always thinking about Aaron ; her past love.  Sometimes, Anna imagined they were rowing boats and playing nearby the river bank. So… always those past memories were haunting in her mind. Anna was never a good wife to her husband due to those past memories. So…most of the time Anna’s husband asked for the reason for her abnormal behavior. But, Anna never gave a good answer for that. Eventually, Anna’s husband became a drunkard, some days he didn’t come home instead he spent time on night clubs , womanizing all day long. But Anna didn’t care about it .

Anna got pregnant at the age of 23. It was 1952. One day, Anna’s husband came home drunk. He had a quarrel with Anna. After few arguments, Anna’s husband Michel pushed Anna hardly away. Anna fell down on the floor and hit her head on a door and she got fainted. She was immidiately hospitalized. She fell in to a coma there. After two weeks of coma she got up, but she didn’t remember anything.  She lost her memory. She lost her baby too. Then Michel went to jail for 5 years.  Doctors moved Anna to a mental hospital.

In the mental hospital, Anna got a young talented doctor named, Leonard for her treatments. He tried to recover Anna in many ways. Finally, he realized that Anna wanted only love and care for the recovery of her brain. So, in few years of treatments and mental therapies, Anna recovered from her abnormal behavior. But, her memory didn’t come back as  before. Meanwhile, Anna’s doctor began to love Anna. Anna’s mind eventually felt the love and care. Then, she began to recover as a new life. Very rarely, Anna addressed Leonard, as “Aaron”. So, Leonard responded to that name and he was pretending as Aaron. 

In a fine morning Anna’s doctors decided, that Anna may go home now. So, Anna came to her old home again. By that time Anna’s father had died. She had only mother and one servant in the home. Meanwhile, Leonard proposed to her. So… she said “Yes” to him. By then, Anna didn’t have any memories of Aaron or her childhood.

One evening, Anna and Leonard went to the river bank where Anna and Aaron used to play as kids. At first sight of the river Anna felt something strange and then she was shocked. So, they came quickly home again. Anna got a severe headache and fever throughout that night. Then, the following day everything seemed to be fine. So… days passed normally for another 6 months. Leonard planned the wedding in few weeks. 

It was year 1956. One evening Anna went to the river bank with the servant. For a few minutes servant left Anna, to go home to get Anna’s scarf.  Anna was walking along the river bank and saw a little boy who was playing around. Anna heard that boy was whispering  to her…

“Anna… say you are my friend forever?”

“Yes Aaron…I am always your best friend. But tell me... you never leave me?”

“I never leave you Anna, no matter what, I never leave you, I promise”.

“Yes…I promise too, not to leave you ever”.

“Anna shall we row the boat ?  river is not rough today”

“Yes, Aaron…Today is the most beautiful day of the river, let's row the boat”.

Few days later, Anna’s body was found down by the river on the wreckage of very old wooden boat.

P.S – 

Few months later, one villager who was fishing saw two kids playing along the river bank and he heard they were whispering : 

“Anna shall we row the boat ? River is not rough today”.

“Yes, Aaron…Today is the most beautiful day of the river, let's row the boat”.

How to love like in Fairy tales?

Well, is this possible?


Once, my friend had this type of love affair. It was an amazing love story. They did travel  together.  They did shopping together, they ate together. They studied together. They did almost everything together. But, they were not living together until they married. Most remarkable thing was, though they liked each others that much, he or she never proposed to each other, until the very last week before they get married. They never spoke about their marriage or their future. They trusted each other blindly. They lived in their own world happily. They didn’t care what is happening outside their beautiful world. They did only love. Is it possible to exist this type of romance? I feel it’s like a fairytale.    

Love is a wonderful thing. Falling in real love, feels like a beautiful fairytale of course. but it depends, if only you just know how to feel it. It doesn’t matter, who you love , it matters how you do it and how you experience it. If you know how to fall in love with someone and enjoy every moment of it, you’ll be able to experience it and cherish it better than many others who think love is just an excuse for physical bond or a way to lean on someone else. It doesn’t matter if you’re already in love or falling in love with someone right this moment, Just try these devotions and commitments to know how to fall in love like you’re in a fairytale, and you may fall for the perfect one!

Being flexible, patient & ready to listen  are the main key points for such a love. For an example, suppose your partner is suggesting something for you. So…Always listen carefully to your partner, be patient to listen to what she or he has to say.

Then, talk with your lover calmly. If it’s a bad thing or a good thing, try to show the pros and cons lovingly. Then let your partner to decide it. If he or she really loves you, they will never take a wrong decision. However if something goes wrong and turned it to a heated argument don’t be scared, keep in mind that the end of the argument should be a good decision for both of you. Never walk away from an argument and shut the door on your partner. Even if it hurts like crazy, talk about it and always end the argument with a warm hug and a kiss.

As possible as you could, stay in touch. You don’t have to be with each other all the time, but try to at least call or text and update present situation. Maybe, when you are shopping with your friends you could buy some gifts for you partner. So, they will realize wherever you go, you stay with your lover in your mind.

When you have some spare time on the weekends, try to spend with your lover in a park, in cinema or go for a picnic. In this way you can know each other’s desires and wants more and more.

Always take photographs or make videos together. Special memories of everyday moments can actually help both of you fall more in love with each other each time you watch those photographs or videos again and again.

Never lose the faith about your true love. Same time, keep in mind that you’ll never clap with one hand; you need two hands for that.

Likewise such a love cannot exist in a single heart. Both hearts must be equally shared,

Then both of you will be the proud owners of such a wonderful fairy tale romance.

What are mountains

What are mountains 
grand with pride
Standing tall
hiding behind
snow fur coats
with fragile egos,
To me
More than that?

How to improve your love life?

Sometimes, Love and romance do not depend on very expensive gifts, or luxurious vacations. True love is really depending on the bunch of little acts and concerns that you do in your day today life. You may be planning to give very expensive gifts to your partner, same time you may forget to say “I love you” for months. It doesn’t matter whether you give an expensive gift or cheap. It is the thought that counts. For instance, I remember one male celebrity gave $ 300,000 worth Canary Yellow diamond ring, to his bride. But just after 7 years they split up. So…All you need is a lot of love and caring. This can take both of you a long way into marital bliss.

Well…what are the little things that you could do for your lover? 

I have a nice example, once I had good friend who had a beautiful wife too. He was working hard in his office, all the stressed. So…at the end of the day, when he goes to home his wife, never asked about his day. Or never touch at least his hand. She just gives something to drink and talk about something and then goes on with the day today life. But one day, his friend asked him to go for a social club. So after very hard working stressful day, he went there. He met a women there and she asked :

“Hi…how was your day?”

My friend told all about his office and how hard it was. So… he got very relaxed. Since that day, he went to this social club on regular basis to meet that woman. Believe me, he was a from very good family and didn’t misuse his opportunity to talk to that woman. But, now he likes that woman and visit her most of the days. Actually, it was a very little thing which can done by his wife. But she didn’t do and it really matters to him with his busy life. So, these type of little things really matter in a perfect relationship. Perhaps, you won't be able to do it every day. I know, nowadays are both males and females are really busy. But keep your mind that, it will keep both of you much alive.
Things you can simply do :

When you get a chance, always try to remind that how your lover meant to you. 

How nice he or she, how much you love, compliment her or him, the way his looks, her hair, her smile, her voice, her eyes, his sense of humor, her or his intelligence, something she has achieved, something she is proud of doing, the way he makes you feel so special and cared for, his caring touch, his passionate behavior etc. 

When you are going to be late getting home or when you have to meet your partner, call and let them know that you’ll be late. It is very inappropriate to make your partner wait without calling. Hold each other’s hand in public. A little public display of affection is always good for love and it will make trust and rely on each other.

In spite of the fact that they are “little” acts , they can mean so much to your lover and ensure that your partner would be perfectly happy in the relationship or in the marriage. 
When your loved one is happy, you’re happy, so it’s a win-win situation. These are just a few of the little things in love that really count more than all the gifts and wealth in the world. There are many more, and surely you can think of a few. Just as long as it doesn’t cost money, and makes your sweetheart feel special and cared for, it’s all great. 

Always remember, it’s the little acts of love and cute love actions that matter more than anything else in the world for two people in love.

Because I really love you!!!

When I’m all alone,

I dream a lot,

I dream such things,

And sometime no words to tell,

I keep my arms to the window sill,

And look through,

With emptiness,

And dreaming….and dreaming,

Now Sun has gone,

There is not any light to kill the darkness,

if you are not here with me anymore,

I don’t want to light up the darkness,

that surrounds me.  

let it be like this, forever,

so…no one can see me here,

and still,

Inside my heart has the light you kindled,

It’ll help to dream,

such dreams,

take me to a higher place,

higher expectations.

And still I’m dreaming,

to go with you,

to the countries, I've never been before,

may be across the world,

across the oceans,

hike the mountains, that I’ve never seen,

swim the rivers, never even heard

walk through the valleys, hand in hand with you

I want to share all my expectations with you,

So…I’m dreaming… still.
